Slide 1

Agents Simplify the Home-Buying Process While selling a home “by owner” can save some money, most people don’t have the time or expertise to market their homes. Real estate agents can help you sort through the complicated market and not only sell your home, but also find and negotiate the perfect house to move into. Without an agent, all that responsibility is on you. So, if you’re thinking about going it alone, be sure you’re ready for a big time commitment and a hefty dose of guesswork.

Agents Get Top Dollar for Their Clients All sellers want their homes to sell quickly and for top dollar, and the best way to accomplish that is to hire an agent. An experienced agent knows how to navigate the market, price your home well, and negotiate the best deal for you on the other end. Don’t forget: Half the commission is usually paid by the people you buy from.

Real estate agents have access to massive databases of homes, along with details that won’t be available in an Internet search. How long has the home been on the market? Are there condition problems? What about any special legal or lending provisions? Your agent has access to all this information, which can prove extremely helpful in negotiating the best price. 3.Agents are Professional House Hunters

Buying and selling a home requires a staggering amount of paperwork. When you hire an agent, you can make an offer with a phone call and a signature. They handle the paperwork and deal with the sellers so you don’t have to. Your agent will also be the primary contact on any offers you get, with an eye toward getting you the most money possible. An agent can deal with any complications in a professional, unemotional way, helping you keep your sanity intact. 4. Agents Handle all the Unpleasant Paperwork
